Happy Merry 4th Birthday Anis!

Groovie Gathering, December 27th
we planned a gathering with all our Groovie Girlfriends @ the beach but since we weren't sure of the weather, i asked if everyone would come to my humble home and a second Birthday celebration for Little Anis! *that lucky Boy!!!* hehe...


we had another barbeque...

Thank You Everyone from the bottom of our Hearts :)
we enjoyed having you and we hope everyone had lots to eat and had fun @ our Groovie Gathering 2008 :D hopefully we can do this yearly affair but please excuse the little space we have @ our humble home. but i guess the smaller the space, the closer everyone could be ;)

and Huge Thanks for all the lovely presents!
Anis says, "Thanks Groovie Uncle, Aunties and friends!!! I love allllllll my presents and they're all mine!!!" hehe...



i would also like to Thank my Groovie Girlfriends for your wonderful Birthday gifts. these are things i can never find @ a store anywhere in this world. *hugs*

i hope Everyone had a wonderful Christmas with Family & Friends :)
did you get lots of presents? ;)
just a few more days until we Welcome 2009 and hopefully all will be better and all will be well. i hope to maintain the Friendship i've made with everyone especially thru Scrapbooking and may it grow and bloom and just be Good :)

things aren't so great with my computer though... *sigh*
rather than get upset with it, i'll make do with not being online for a little while until it is alright again. Thankfully Ron's in town so his laptop allows me some time online :D this is one part of Life, computer life that i guess most of us go thru ;)

next is preparation for the 1st Day of School for our kids. they're already sorting out their uniform, books & shoes, especially Aysha who bought herself a new pair with cash she received from working part~time during the school hols. she managed to get a home based job doing data entry for a firm using the computer. so Proud of her! and with the some of the cash she received from being a Top Student, she gave us all a little treat :)

Thank You Dear Friends for taking some of your time to drop by. truly Appreciate kind words left by you and wishing you a Smashing last few days of 2008 and have a Great Time! Take care :)

Great photos Edleen, looks like you have all had a wonderful time celebrating Christmas and Birthdays. That Birthday Cake is amazing. I want to wish you a wonderful 2009 full of joy and family time. Sorry to hear about your computer - hope that it is better soon - you certainly don't realize how much you miss it until you don't have it do you.
